With the shivering temperatures this past winter, plumbers have seen homes fill with water and freeze.
What’s the cause of this?
Leaking pipes seeping through walls and ceilings are a major cause. However, it’s not just leaking pipes! Wildlife animals have been searching for homes during this bitter winter. The number one places that little rodents look are plumbing vents. Plumbing vents look warm and cozy, but in actuality, the rodents are breathing in sewer gas. This means that the blocking passage in the pipe is leading to bathroom waste backing up in the home.
Remind clients about the benefits of insulated pipes and putting wide mesh over the plumbing stack on their roofs!
